  1. Crimson Gray ( and the female protagonist is a yandere to the root )
  2. Although I've been reading VN's for quite a while, I was never hooked to the point of reading a single novel all the dam day as I do tend to space out my reading, but Umineko changed that. I managed to read through those 90+ hours in a single week whilst being totally focused and immersed, which is not something usual for me to be able to do. Clannad, which would be one of my favorites VN, took me between 3 and 6 months to fully complete as each session did tire me out, but I guess the mystery and conspiracy aspect can change that. I'm looking for any novel that might replicate this feeling, which is not a problem considering the coronavirus situation, all the free time in the world right now. As for Steins Gate, I did see the anime so I will skip the novel considering it's totally spoiled for me, which doesn't excite me one bit
  3. can u recommend me some dark n depressin visual novls

    School days VN is pretty unique in the way that it runs with constant animations. Most of the endings are bad and bloody, a couple of yandere and some pretty dark themes. Not very highly rated since many people hate the douchebag protagonist, but I can recommend it. Crimson Gray is a short one, with a classic yandere love interest, pretty hard to get the only good ending without a guide. "Tomoyo after - it's a wonderful life" (it's not) fits exactly what you looking for - but it requires some knowledge of Tomoyo route in Clannad (either its VN or anime adaptation).
  4. Craving some new VNs

    Hoshi Ori for a pure love story, complete endings with a little bit of after school stories and almost no drama at all (just some minor stuff). G Senjou no Maou has a very interesting true route with no mandatory prerequisites, it goes beyond romance whoever (it is also a mystery/ thriller). KoiChoco can be a pain to get running ( need to set JP locale - emulator doesn't work for this one), but it is also a decent one. (it has a mandatory route).
  5. VN with after story

    Recently finished reading Hoshi Ori and I loved the way that most of the game is spent after the confession scene with some routes containing lengthy after stories years after school graduation[rikka], though not quite as much as Clannad but still refreshing enough from the standard two sex scenes -> credits roll. It feels like a more realistic approach to relationships, especially when we consider that in the real world most high school sweethearts end up breaking up after a while, just like I did (ROFL). I did play Tomoyo after(being a fan of Tomoyo route in Clannad), but the bittersweet (or just bitter) ending kinda wrecked me and I'm not sure if I should just start Summer Pockets, hanging around in my library, as I can't find much information about how this game compares to others in terms of Key bullshittery tearjerker punches that they randomly pull from nowhere just for the laugh (or the cry). I'm also willing to consider untranslated titles, I may not be able to read them immediately but they prove to be a useful addition to my collection nonetheless, right now I'm barely an N5. It doesn't need to be a romance focused title, but some is always appreciated. edit: fan discs are fine as well
  6. KoiChoco Not Working

    My copy had many problems as well, but I was able to play after changing the locale to Japanese and running the executable as administrator.
  7. Ever 17 will certainly keep you engaged. Keep in mind that spoilers will ruin the entire experience so do a blind playthrough and take care when searching for any info about this specific VN.
  8. Had a really rough semester...dog died, a friend died, I'm exhausted after college exams but finally got some holidays to rest a little bit Well, ever since I became an orphan over a year ago, I found VN's to be really good for distracting my mind. G Senjou no Maou was my first one and my favourite to this day just because I liked the protagonist personality and the ending is one of the best since it is the perfect type of bittersweet i like, Grisaia is a close second but a little bit too unrealistic and deus ex machina in some parts, I've also read Katawa shoujo, Clannad, Koichoco, ever17, Kono Ozora and I'm still waiting for Hello lady, Dracu riot, Sharin no kuni official releases and Umineko gold edition as well, so that's why I'm not reading these ones yet, rather taste the final optimized version always I'm looking for any good VN that I can enjoy but with some romance included. I know VN's like kara no shoujo and fata morgana are probably really good but I want some anime-like, Japanese style romance, don't care for cliches or tropes, in fact, I want them I would appreciate your recommendations Thanks!
  9. So, i just finished reading the grisaia series, it has been a pleasure, and after that i don't think i can go back to the generic VN with weak/dumb/indecisive mc. Also, i started reading VNs this year, first one was g senjou no maou, so im not really a veteran yet. My list until now is: Clannad ( no words to say, it is a 10. that said, tomoyo after sequel had a cheesy and crap ending that undermined my appreciation for the series since it felt like a punch to the face) G senjou no Maou ( a 9 for me, played just the main route but it kept me glued, just like a dan brown book does) Katawa Shoujo ( gave it a 7, quite overrated in my opinion, MC was way too annoying in some routes, playing the jerky white knight type) KoiChoco ( generic but nice and entertaining) School Days ( though many people say its crap, i did like it - mainly due to the 100% animation and guilty pleasure value) Island ( I liked it in the first part, liked a bit in the middle and hated the ending - the anime was crap but it went for the milf ending at least, the vn ending was insulting, unsatisfying and that makes me regret it) Grisaia Series ( It was quite long, took me a few months to finish it, a solid 9. Not as heartwarming as clannad and not thrilling the way g senjou was, still a very good experience)
  10. VN to read after senjou no maou

    Had it in my pc since 2015, but i'm pretty sure it was a fan translation avaiable in vndb page rather than the retail one in steam. Thanks a lot for the recommendations guys! Plenty of good stuff to start with Will be reading Grisaia next as it certainly seems to be as good or even better than devil on g string. Forgot to say i did play a bit of clannad vn, after watching the anime, just for kyou and tomoyo routes, might as well try other key vns in the future but i guess i don't want to shed any more tears for a while.
  11. So, g senjou was my first vn and it was really good, kept me glued to the screen from the middle to the end, though only the main route was that interesting. Katawa shoujo was my second and in my opnion, quite overrated, filled with much unnecessary drama, but at least good enough on some routes. Looking for something with good writing, conclusive endings and i do like when there is a "canon" main route, preferably with a decent male protagonist rather than generic kun
